They're not, are they? Well blow me down with a fevva, I'd 'ave nevva Adam 'n' Eve'd it, if you ''adn't told me.

I do remember once being in Het Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam overhearing an Englishwoman exclaim "Oh, I thought that they were our friends", when she saw a painting of The Battle of the Medway. All good fun.

What is that canvas covered bus looking do-hickey carrying about 24 guys in it?

It is a Bedford QLT TT

And it has room for 29 men - plus the driver. Oh and I already raided some of the supplies from it and spread it around the unit.

Minute 1:00-0:59:

Commandant Litson only had to wait a short time after getting back into his tank to hear reports. His armoured recon came under mortar fire as soon as they reached the edge of the woods. Not long after that reports came in from members of the assault gun troop that there was a bunker observing them from the hill at KT3. We are lucky they didn't drop shells on the infantry. A quick check with Lt Col Ram Singh shows his men are not under fire and the crossing of the river is proceeding.

Things begin to happen pretty much right away. The armoured recon units come under mortar fire as soon as they near their positions. The enemy must have known we were forming up (Aside: Bud sent me an email saying he was sorry for the first turn barrage – he made a mistake. Since it had little effect I said no to worry – well weave it into the story).

The assault gun troop spot a bunker on the hill.

The guys with the 105mm cannons are pretty much the perfect troop to spot a bunker :)

Thanks. I did look them up, but apart finding out that there was such a unit as the 24th Battalion Sikh Regiment, I couldn't find any other info.

Yes, same here. I am pretty sure they were assigned a division in the India army but I could not find details. I did not read a lot just sifted through the wikipedia pages in Italian campaign, Indian Army and the Sikh regiment. I am sure the details are out there but I had enough info for our make believe scenario.

Minute 0:59: Orders

The assault gun troop will rearrange the selves to make sure no friendlies are between them and the bunker and then open fire.

The armoured recon will have to shift right to stay away from the mortar fire.

Infantry recon commence the river crossing.

+1  Nice!!  I like the contour lines and the view arrows for the ground level screenshots.  This will be Interesting to follow. 

Thanks. I freehanded the contour lines. May not be perfect but I think they do the job.

Any chance of more screenshots from Italy, and less from Telegraphpole Land?
